Enjoyable Blackie entry with ample laughs, no big surprises
24 September 2011 | by csteidler (Minnesota)

Blackie and the Runt rescue a woman (Lynn Merrick) who's been attacked in the street right in front of their building. They carry in the unconscious woman, who is quickly identified as Gerry Peyton, one of Blackie's old flames. Nothing much new so far, but when they open the bedroom door we see the main twist that this series entry has to offer: a baby!

Emphasis on comedy, which, if you like it, you will enjoy. It all falls pretty flat and obvious to me: men in drag, comic double takes, disruptions caused by a baby. Not my cuppa.
